Risk Analysis, Prospect Evaluation and Exploration Economics

5d course picOur flagship course covers all phases of exploration decision-making. With a strong practical orientation and abundant use of realistic exercises, we illustrate the applications and mechanics of the various concepts and analytical procedures involved in the evaluation and investment analysis of exploration prospects.

The course follows the characteristic chain of considerations that attends most exploration projects, including both theory and application, and integrates the geotechnical, leasing, economics, and management aspects of such ventures. This course utilizes the latest methods for dealing with risk and uncertainty.

Evaluating Tight Oil and Gas Reservoirs

shale picThis 3-day class provides an extensive introduction to the exploration, appraisal and development of tight oil and gas reservoirs. It identifies the data that need to be collected, how to analyze and interpret them, and how to integrate and apply this knowledge to the decision‐making process. Participants will develop a broad understanding of the practices and pitfalls in assessing these reservoirs, and will reinforce this knowledge by analyzing case study posters as teams. Attendees will receive a course notebook and 4 GBs of reference material. While not a prerequisite, it is recommended that this course be taken prior to R&A’s “Unconventional Resource Assessment and Valuation” course.

Unconventional Resource Assessment and Valuation

Shale PhotoThis course covers the assessment methods required for the technical and economic evaluation of drilling programs in Unconventional resource plays. The premise for this course is that sound estimation of key engineering, geotechnical, and economic parameters is essential for maximizing profitability. Due to uncertainty and prevailing risks, Unconventional resource assessment requires a Probabilistic approach, rather than deterministic methods, which call for the ongoing study of key parameters to get ever closer to “The Answer”.

Mitigating Bias, Blindness and Illusion in E&P Decision Making

BBI Course Word CloudDecisions in E&P ventures are affected by bias, blindness, and illusions, which creep into our analyses and interpretations. This one to two day course examines the influence of these distortions and presents techniques that can be used to mitigate their impact. Bias refers to errors in thinking whereby interpretations and judgments are drawn in an illogical fashion. Blindness is the condition where we fail to see an unexpected event in plain sight. Illusions  are misleading beliefs based on a false impression of reality. All three can lead to poor decisions regarding which work to undertake, what issues to focus on, and whether to forge ahead or walk away from a project.
This course examines the types of bias, blindness and illusion that affect us through exercises, videos, examples and discussions, which illustrate how these exert themselves in our daily activities. We then address their role in the oil and gas industry via case studies that show their impact on decision-making. This is followed by real-world exercises using data from exploration and/or development projects to give participants practice in addressing bias, blindness, and illusion in their technical work. The course concludes by presenting a summary ‘toolkit’ with mitigation techniques that immediately can be applied to project work.

Generation of Production Type Curves for Unconventional Reservoirs

Shaoyong graphicThis 3-day course is designed to provide participants with the skill of using both analytical and empirical methods to forecast production profiles and EURs in unconventional (ultra-low permeability) reservoirs, with a focus on Production Type Well curve generation. The methods reviewed are all endorsed by the SPEE’s recent Monograph-4. Each method will be reviewed. Excel-based software will be used to demonstrate the advantages and limitations of using each method.

Play-Based Exploration: Mapping, Volumetric and Risk Analysis

PBE picThis exercise-rich course will touch on all aspects of PBE. Group mapping exercises from an actual exploration play reflecting state of knowledge at two periods of time (circa 1980 versus present day) provides participants insights from the actual results as compared to their predictions. Accompanied with a comprehensive course notebook (with approximately 300 figures), emphasis in the course is placed upon achieving consistency in mapped chance assessment, avoiding pitfalls in the process, and using appropriate analogs. At the end of the course, participants are fully prepared to create consistent Common Risk Segment maps.
